Quantity: 
Price:  $135.00
 
Item #39791

Original era manufacture. A stamped brass eagle plate as worn on the M1860 enlisted shako. Cutout numbers for the 98th regiment and a brass tab on the reverse for attaching to the shako. Very sound condition with a nice brass patina, minor denting from age and use.

The reverse of the plate shows a small brass disc set around the base of the mounting tab, dated 1860, with a serial number of 619.

At the outset of the Franco-Prussian War, the 98th Regiment  formed part of the 2nd Division, 4th Army Corps, under the command of General Ladmirault.
